Ole Gunnar Solskjaer understandably wants Manchester United to back his team with a decisive summer transfer window.
It’s the least they should do after he got us back into the Champions League when the odds were against him.
United finished third ahead of Chelsea, who picked up the last Champions League spot, and we’re still in with a chance of winning silverware after qualifying for the Europa League quarter-finals.
The squad needs quality additions if we are to see more progression and we all desperately want to bridge the gap in the table which exists between Liverpool and ourselves.
Moreover, The Standard has ran a piece naming those who allegedly appear on Manchester United’s transfer list. Jadon Sancho is the ‘priority attacking signing’ whereas Bayern Munich’s Kingsley Coman is an alternative option.
Jack Grealish is named on the list but so is Donny van de Beek. The Dutchman would likely be a cheaper alternative, with Grealish doing his bit to keep Aston Villa’s Premier League status alive.
And a centre-back, perhaps most importantly, is being considered. Juventus’ Matthijs de Ligt is a long-term target but that would be a very tricky acquisition given he has just won the Serie A title in his first season in Italy, though they will be disappointed after getting knocked out of the Champions League by Lyon.
